Section 6

The links that are supposed to show that the term "gay bowel syndrome" is still used actually say that the term is outdated. We should probably either find new sources that support our contention or take this section out altogether. GregT 14:40, 28 October 2009 (EDT)

The notable doctor I cited at John Hopkins and Medscape does not consider the term outdated plus the data the article provides fully supports the idea of the syndrome is not an outdated term. Also, I cited a leading provider of online medical health information using the term. I hope you are not saying that per capita homosexual men are not more likely to get those diseases and there is some causal relationships among some of the maladies plus a correlation among some of the diseases. Because if you were, you would certainly be wrong. conservative 06:41, 10 October 2010 (EDT)
I just created an article on the notable doctor. See: John G. Bartlett.
More importantly, the underlying conditions that underlie the condition gay bowel syndrome (some of which are related to AIDS as a causal factor), saw an increase so it rather difficult to say the term is not relevant.Conservative (talk) 01:46, 1 February 2019 (EST)

Fecal incontinence

Hi, I've been doing some research on the topic of homosexuality and health, and I've found that fecal incontinence is extremely prevalent among homosexuals. I don't know if fecal incontinence is part of gay bowel syndrome per se, but I think it deserves to be mentioned in this article.

Not part of this syndrome. You will have to create a separate article with medical sources given of course. Conservative 15:31, 25 July 2011 (EDT)

Semen Immunosuppression

This is an interesting article, and I wonder if this site shouldn't address other homosexual health related issues. One concern is over the immunosuppressive nature of semen when it is deposited in the rectum and is absorbed into the body through the soft tissue - see S. S. Witkin and J. Sonnabend, "Immune Responses to Spermatozoa in Homosexual Men," Fertility and Sterility, 39(3): 337-342, pp. 340-341 (1983) or this site. TommyF 17:58, 28 August 2011 (EDT)

Create a new article. I am guessing that User:RobSmith will not be asking you to apply your talents elsewhere anytime soon. Conservative 18:51, 28 August 2011 (EDT)
OK, let me go and pull together the research. I look forward to working with you on this. TommyF 19:21, 28 August 2011 (EDT)

Vindication! Conservapedia proven right - again!

In February of 2014, the medical journal Current Opinion in Infectious Disease publishes a journal article entitled 'Gay bowel syndrome': relic or real (and returning) phenomenon? whose abstract summary statement indicates: "All healthcare practitioners (including non-sexual health/HIV specialists) need to consider careful and thorough history taking (including sexual history) to identify those at risk." See: 'Gay bowel syndrome': relic or real (and returning) phenomenon? by Cooper F1, Barber T., Current Opinion in Infectious Disease, 2014 Feb;27(1):84-9. doi: 10.1097/QCO.0000000000000032 Conservative (talk) 20:31, 5 February 2019 (EST)

Conservative, I am a medical student and the 2014 source you have cited actually says gay bowel syndrome is not a thing nor a syndrome. I don't think it's very conservative to edit out the part that says that, and to make it look like they said GBS exists. --Conservativescience (talk) 22:55, 25 April 2020 (EDT)
